Advent Calendar - Day 15

Today Ella did some Christmas puzzles for her activity.  I wasn't about to go out and buy Christmas puzzles, so I made a few out of foam pieces.  As a side-note, I bought a stack of foam pieces from Walmart for about 3 dollars.  It was such a great craft investment for this advent calendar and I still have a ton left over!

Back to the puzzles - I made a Christmas tree, candy cane and star.  I also copied one of our Christmas family pictures and I'm going to make that into a jigsaw puzzle for another day (my mom thought that would be fun for Ella).  I also cut out a bunch of different coloured circles and got Ella to string them (like a lacing activity).  My intention was for her to hang them up in her bedroom.  She decided she didn't want them in her room though, so they're in the living room!

Ella did this puzzle no problem!

Apparently the other two were a bit more difficult

She did it! (with a little help from Mommy)
